This looks amazing. When will see the gameplay?

getrektedmate1341d ago (Edited 1341d ago )

Most likely at E3, when Microsoft is going to rise.

ArchangelMike1341d ago

Yeah, I'll wait for the PS4 version with all the DLC included.

i really cant wait to see gameplay, i hope its sooner than E3 though.


You didn't have to respond to Archangel cos you had nothing reasonable to say, so take your FB BS out of here. its not needed.

LexHazard791341d ago


Lol, yeah you have to wait. Like you had a choice. Lol....when you do play it Xbox gamers will have moved on to something else.

TedCruzsTaint1341d ago


If you weren't too busy fanboying all over N4G, you might have enough time to actually play your "superior" system.
Level headedness is a hard thing to come by here, sadly.

XBLSkull1341d ago

The real question is why is it coming to X360? Time to move on guys, time to move on...

4Sh0w1341d ago (Edited 1341d ago )

lol, ArchangelMike & CLOUD1983= Double Jelly....enjoy the wait.

OT, those are nice pics but I want to see some gameplay already.

magiciandude1341d ago

CLOUD1983 "@ArchangelMike

You forgot to add the word "Superior" before PS4, "Superior PS4 version" that's what all the smart people are going to do :)"

Yeah, no. I am getting this game on Xbox One. Not worth waiting just for 3% better resolution.

Dewitt1341d ago (Edited 1341d ago )

Since it is being published by MS good luck with that. I can see PC, but I don't think there will be a PS4 version or if there is not for several years.

DialgaMarine1341d ago

@BakPAin It's definitely not being published by M$, otherwise there would be no doubt of it's permanent exclusivity. M$ simply has a timed exclusivity deal, like they have with most things. Given how little confidence Phil Spencer had when asked how long it would remain exclusive, I'd say we'll be seeing a PS4 version by summer 2016 at the latest.

In the meantime, PS4 gamers will enjoy Uncharted 4, which sales and metascore have proven that Uncharted is far superior to Tomb Raider, so I'm perfectly okay with that.

Outside of that, there's too many other games coming to PS4 this year to get caught up on the sequel to a Tomb Raider title that was decent at best.

mikeslemonade1341d ago

I'm getting the X1 version to support exclusives and timed exclusives. But I know it will be the more inferior version of the 3. I wouldn't play it over again on PC or PS4.

abstractel1341d ago (Edited 1341d ago )

I was actually disappointed in the screenshots. Tomb Raider on past generation was gorgeous for the hardware it was on, these screen shots do not live up to current gen standards of games already out (Ryse, Infamous, Driveclub, Killzone etc.) and games almost out (The Order, Bloodborne) and to fan the flames perhaps, not nearly as nice looking as Uncharted 4 gameplay.

But I hope when they release footage it will look awesome. I want Quantum Break and Rise of the Tomb Raider but if they both come out on PC I'll stick with the PS4 as my console of choice.

Zool 081340d ago (Edited 1340d ago )

@ magiciandude and Dewitt, in the meantime we'll be playing the much more superior Uncharted 4 while we're waiting, as a matter of fact I don't even know if it's worth the wait.

DOMination-1340d ago

Actually, MS ARE publishing Rise of the Tomb Raider. It was only recently announced

Dfooster1340d ago

The first game barely broke even on four consoles, I'd say it's pretty certain this will be coming out for the PS4

BallsEye1340d ago

hope it's even more open world than last time!

JMyers1340d ago (Edited 1340d ago )

MS is going to rise? What?

Maybe they show invest in NEW IPs and in first party studios, rather than investing in keeping already established IPs and games from appearing on other systems?

Pay to make games not pay to make others being unable to play former multiplats.

DigitalRaptor1340d ago (Edited 1340d ago )

@ Dewitt

It's indeed being published by MS, but it's all but confirmed to be coming to PS4 and other platforms in the near future by their unwillingness to confirm it as an actual exclusive.

If they had a deal in place for long-term exclusivity, we would already have been told.



I can understand if you'd say you choose to play on XB1 as you want it as soon as possible, it's your platform of choice, you prefer the controller, friend list, it's the only console you have, whatever... We all know the differences will be minimal, anyway. But supporting timed exclusives? That's new!

You actually want MS to dump money on multiplatform games that are getting done anyway instead of they investing on exclusives, actually getting more games available to their user base? "Never go full retard" doesn't even start to describe this...

TedCruzsTaint1340d ago


I really enjoyed the Uncharted games. Mainly the second too.
I still preferred Tomb Raider.

Yeah, hopefully. Damn so many comments above you. Cant we all just get along? Sigh.

Killa781341d ago (Edited 1341d ago )

Could be earlier, hope the devs release a few teasers.

If they're already letting the Press in anyway.

DarkOcelet1341d ago

Maybe like IIFloodyII above you said. GDC. That seems to be a good time. I honestly cant wait.

Jazz41081340d ago

This game should be a lot of fun. Can't wait to see more.

Lennoxb631341d ago

Here's a better view of these same pics.

Man I can't wait to see this in motion. One of my most anticipated.

DarkOcelet1341d ago

Thank you kindly for the link :) .

This certainly looks as if they might have added co op elements in the game with two players. That could be a good idea.

calis1341d ago

There are about 4 good pictures provided. The rest are a blurry mess.

Letthewookiewin1341d ago

Wow it's looking great! Wish they would ditch the 360 version though, especially if it's holding current gen back.

NuggetsOfGod1340d ago

From the pictures it looks like la noire like face capture.
Every next-gen game should be doing it.

Man I want this more that another uncharted. I hope it comes to pc.

Not to many games feel like you're playing a movie. Tomb Raider pulled that off.

Automatic791340d ago

This game is definitely in my most hyped up games list this year.

christocolus1341d ago

Looking great. Hope we see gameplay at GDC.

Stiffler1341d ago

Aye, cannot wait for some more footage and some gameplay.

Looks very exciting!

DarkOcelet1341d ago


I wanted to ask you, Have yo ever played Tomb Raider on the PS1 ^_^ or just the new reboot? Because you seem laugh everytime i mention 'Dinasours' in the game :D

christocolus1341d ago

I never played much of the original games but my brother and most of my friends did and i saw enough of it to know everything about the games.I know there were tigers and other animals in the original games i cant remember if there were dinosaurs but it wouldn't be too farfetched.i also remember a lot of tomb exploration and puzzles.

The reason i laughed when you mentioned dinosaurs was because the new direction of the game is a lot different from the originals,its more realistic now i.e the story, setting and graphics and after reading your comment i started imagining dinosaurs in the was funny and it just didn't seem right imo, but who knows?i was watching a video of the order 1886 the other day and i saw Gallahad with sackboy from little big planet so i guess anything is it would be amazing to see CD bring in Dinosaurs though.

bleedsoe9mm1341d ago

i'm a sucker for snow games

Hellsvacancy1340d ago (Edited 1340d ago )

Yeah I'm also a snow whore, +1 for typing something I find interesting

WizzroSupreme1341d ago

That's the best looking Lara Croft I've ever seen. Fantastic.

Bigpappy1341d ago (Edited 1341d ago )

I have to say the butt is much more toned, and the hair is very well kept out there in the wild. The environments look great too.

I am going to take a wild guess and say: this game will support DX12.

Sorry. But I have to ask:

Which 3rd party exclusive do your prefer, this game or the new Street Fighter?

christocolus1341d ago (Edited 1341d ago )

That isn't a hard question,im a big fan of TR.loved the rebot and eager to see where it goes from there and this one looks so ambitious, its amazing to see CD put in so much attention into every detail and that snow looks so sweeet.. also i'm kind of glad we are not being bombarded with too many AA games right now, This year is filled with so many of them and i need time to save up for the really good ones..its going to be crazy. i'm still going through shadow of mordor, my brother got me walking dead season1 and 2 and im yet to start Dragon Age also i have a tonne of indies to keep me busy in between but its nice to know that Jack Joyce, Master Chief and Lara Croft will all be fighting for our hard earned cash this fall. if a gears collection is announced then it will be fun to see Marcus fenix join in the battle for supremacy.

Moldiver1341d ago

Even though I am a die hard SF fan. I will say TR screams "AAA" more than SF5, which is a 20 year old "2D fighter at its core. So yeah....TR was probably the bigger catch. But SF5 will be a bigger win in asian territories for sont than TR for MS. So from a business point a view, I guess they had different objectives.

I think PS4 has become the beat em up console this gen (was 50/50 last gen). And SF5 kind of seals the deal. But that has more impact in the far east than the west or even europe. But tomb raider does have that impact in the west and eu amongst other regions. So its a case of "hedge your bets".... for MS and sony, anyway. All the accountants probably want to know is who spent their money better, come the end of the 2015 fiscal.

OrangePowerz1341d ago

Reminds me somewhat of Uncharted 2 to environments.

SF5 is most likely just the same timed exclusive deal and SF5 Ultra Super Extrem to the Max Edition will be released for every platform.

Kakashi Hatake1341d ago

I see what you did there, but it's not the same situation at all.

Letthewookiewin1341d ago

Dude SF is being Co-developed with Sony. It's not a timed exclusive like Tomb Raider.

Jazz41081340d ago

Definitely Tomb Raider. I used to play the fighting games more as a kid. They have no appeal to me other then memories. I like single player games like the new aliens and evil with in and Dragon age that I can put 40 TO 100 OR so hours in. That is what really makes a game worth it as the new systems graphic wise as I have both seem pretty close to even bother and I prefer Xbox controller do that's where my games are being purchased next to a few ps4 exclusives and again I'm into lengthy games not fighting games. I enjoyed last of us and infamous and uncharted other then that the list is all me from here on for me and these screen shots look good and tomb raider has always been lengthy and had a good story to go with it. I also can not wait for switcher and mass effect as they started for me on Xbox and that's where I will continue.

thekhurg1341d ago

I prefer real 3rd party exclusives, not timed ones.

fanboysmackdown1341d ago

Because it's a 3rd party exclusive, does that make it inferior in any way? I prefer good games and could give an asses rat what system it comes out on because I can play on either.

maniacmayhem1341d ago

Personally I'm a huge SF fan so for me SF5 will be the exclusive I am looking forward too.

I have never been a big Tomb Raider fan even though I have heard the last few entries have been really good.

I'll have to keep an eye out for this one and throw in in my gamefly que.

ChickenOfTheCaveMan1341d ago

Though this one isn't an exclusive, it's a timed release...

hkgamer1341d ago

tr is most likely getting other releases next year, sf is going to be released on pc along side ps4 with very slim chance of a xbone version.

its also quite hard to compare. genres are very different and it depends on gaming habits. i loved the tr reboot so there is no doubt i would be looking forward to this aswell, thouh i will wait for ps4 (if it gets released) because i dont own an xbone yet. sfV will be a day1 buy for me so i can take advantage of everyone being a noob.

boing11340d ago (Edited 1340d ago )

Not most likely. It will get other releases in the beginning of next year.

N311V1340d ago

I'd give up SF for TR any day! I'm really hoping TR comes to PS4 but I'm not expecting it to. Given that Microsoft is now publishing the game I'll assume it's an exclusive until otherwise is official announced. Yes I've read what Spencer had to say and it was vague at best. Just because you didn't buy the IP doesn't mean you didn't secur exclusive rights to this instalment of the franchise.

Yetter1340d ago

Not really a fighting game fan so the choice is easy for me
